Volleyball: Huskies Overcome Sluggish Start [STATS] [PHOTOS]


Despite a slow start at the Giltner Triangular, the Huskie Volleyball team picked up the momentum and brought home victories in both of their match-ups against Giltner and Doniphan-Trumbull last night.

The Huskies started off the Triangular facing the home team, Giltner.  Giltner is a D-2 ranked #4 team and the Huskies did not get the jump start they wanted.  Their game flow was a bit off and they ended up dropping the first set 13-25.  The Huskies had to make some improvements in their play to come back from the deficit and beat the Hornets and they did just that.  They started to bring the momentum back on their side and took the game from the Hornets in the next two sets, 25-23 and 25-21.

The Huskies took that momentum right into the next game against the Doniphan-Trumbull Cardinals.  The team pulled together and never let up as they beat the Cardinals handeley in two sets: 25-13, 25-17.

The Huskies will be back on the court Thursday night at Milford to play in the Milford Triangular against Milford and Superior.  The Triangular starts at 5:30pm, with games at 5:30/6:30/7:30pm. Be sure to follow our LIVE blog on the Huskie Sports Network.
